Yeh I hear wat ur saying. It deffo is easier the longer I can 'put it off'. I'm trying everything I know rn to distract myself but so far I just can't get the thoughts or images outa my head. I will continue to try tho

If it's safe, go for a walk? Sit out back? Watch a movie, watch some YouTubes, play something you like really loud and sing along. Something anything. Hugs, if wanted.

Posting for the first time on this site and forums in general. Don't know what to say except time is going really slow while my brain keeps on racing. It feels as if I am on constant rollercoaster of emotions and I am scared to feel anything. I prefer feeling emptiness but even then, the pain persists somehow. I don't have strong urges, yet I keep relapsing for some reason. It's not too bad, but it's not good either.

Hello and welcome! Self harm brought me to PF, as well.

Well, it's never good, but Not Bad is a darn sight better than Bad. So that's something.

I sometimes find my thoughts racing as well, I have to distract myself with watching something.

If you do do a bad SH then take good aftercare. Best to try and keep it light if you can you know that. Try and be kind to yourself.

Im sorry if i was out of line in my other postings. But i felt like i wasnt alone. In real life i feel very alone. I know that my thinking is not good. And i dont sound real safe. I talked to my counselor at my day program. She said that she didnt know what to do wh ith me. I know that tomorrow i see my therapist and he will admit me. If i get through the night without calling him. But im scared as to where they will put my kids. But im sorry to bother you all. I need some major help with my major depression and my bpd. I will follow my therapist from now on.

Hi and welcome

Hope this finds you safe. Having a therapist tell you they don't know what to do with you is uncomfortable and upsetting- it triggers off so many other things. Sometimes I've found the perspective of another professional helpful with that. What is a treatment dead end to one therapist can be a starting point for another. I hope you are able to find the support you need from your team.

Hugs if you'd like some.
